my whole house has been sick. Kids are finally better but I still have a cough and stuffy head. I hate summer colds.
So, here is a LO that I have had in my scrapfriends gallery for quite a while; but, I absolutely love it- it's one of my favs
I used BG Romani papers - cut all the flowers out of one sheet and layered them on pop dots, lined them with my Sakura stardust Gelly Roll & Tiara pens, and added rhinestones. The frame was stamped with Prima build-a-frame stamps and then colored over with the Tiara pens (which are the same as Stardust but they are from Sakura of "Japan). The tags are Romani, the ribbon is making memories

I did this layout for the Monday Challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap (linked in sidebar). As their sister of the week, I got an early start :)
These were the next photos in my waiting pile so that was a lucky break.
The black cardstock is DCWV as are the white mats. I inked the edges of all papers with my Color Box chestnut roan cat's eye and the photos with Timber Brown Stazon. I took plain white paper (actually the inserts of page protector refills) and painted it with Making Memories scrapbook paint (Hampton collection & Pearl glaze) I also used some Brenda Walton baby handprint stamps.
I used part of my painted sheet as a background mat and ran part thru my Cricut to cut the main part of my title (George cartridge) I used a Sakura micron pen to write the smaller title part and cut out one of the handprints as an embellishment.

The Sisterhood of Scrap blog (link in sidebar) issued a challenge 2 Mondays ago to scrap something Silly. As it happens, these 2 photos were in my next batch of photos to scrap. A was making monkey noises and arm movements when I took the second pic.
The paper is again from my immense stash. The 'monkey' are brown felt American Crafts Thickers- love the texture they add IRL. I wrote the 'Silly Little' and the journaling with my brown Zig marker. The monkey was stamped with an Autumn Leaves single that I think is also in the Mindy's Zoo set. The pics were matted on DCWV cardstock and edges inked with ColorBox Cat's Eye (chestnut brown).
The LO is pretty simple but I really like how it came out

I love how this layout turned out. Mystery envie challenge at Scrap Your Crap blog.
I can't remember who made the main PP- and am too lazy to go look. Mat is 8x8 stak from Marcella by Kay. Metal words are MM. Chalk ink from Colorbox. Doodlebug paper frill. Flower from my stash. Button is EK Success. Also highlighted several words of background paper with my stardust clear gelly roll pen
Hard to see but all the embellies were pre-glittered up or have had stardust pens added to them in various colors. The dot trails have been dotted over with gold precious elements pen from CM. This also used some Marcella by Kay paper and embellies that I have had for quite a while- yay for using my stash!!
This was a challenge for the Scrap Your Crap blog

I used to have a livejournal blog but I have not posted in forever. SIo, I thought I might just go ahead and start a new one. I primarily want a place to post my scrapbooking crap. BTW, I am seriously obsessed wit scrapbooking. Love it lots. If I won the lottery, I would probably spend all day every day SBing. Unfortunately, I have to work for a living so I'll have to satisfy myself with SBing a couple nights a month instead :P
